Where are my risk taking mom friends out there?

Once we have kids, taking risks are even more scary. It's not just our own life [or partner's life] at risk... it's our kids' lives too.

It seems like a constant and never ending balancing act... we want a safe, yet comfortable life for our kids. However, in order to live the life we truly want to live... risks have to be taken.

Risks that will take us out of the comfort zone.

Risks that others might think we're crazy for taking.

Risks that even our spouse might try to talk us out of.

My whole life I have never been one to play it safe... always had a high risk tolerance. 
Now faced with a challenging decision ... and to be united with my low risk tolerance, highly analytical husband ... This is hard.

My question to you... How risky are you, mom, when it comes to decisions that could affect your family's finances and time together... but in the long run, move you closer to your dream for you and your family?

Evy's pig got choosen to be in the show too!
It's so important to be supportive of each child's individual talent and interests... helping them grow into the little people they were created to be.

Who do you want to impact?

I will share a personal dream of mine... that is about to start coming to fruition.

God put a vision into my heart and mind to impact moms, helping moms to live their best life with their kids in tow... and more than that, God put a dream in my heart to speak to these moms live, in groups of hundreds... even thousands... Well, so I will be able to speak to dozens... if not hundreds of Peruvian moms about fulfilling the deepest desires of their hearts live and in person!

This will happen this summer, with the help and support of my amazing Peruvian husband... So... whatever your vision is for your life... may you impact the people around you in only the way that YOU can.

Who do you want to...

Are you feeling a lack of motivation?

Try this.

Start your day with a reminder of how wonderfully amazing you are. YOU sister, are made in the image of God... your deep heart desires are HIS deep heart desires. 
Keep that flame burning deep in your soul.

Start by writing yourself love notes on the mirror before you go to bed at night, so they great you in the morning and bring delight into your soul.

You are amazing mama.

Write a comment here to let me know what you will write to yourself on your mirror tonight.

Helping moms live their best life... with kids in tow.
That's the desire of my heart.
It's easy to forget your own desires when you're a mom... and a wife... and have a career... and/or a business... and the cleaning... and the kid activities... and... and... and...
Yes... raise your kids with all the passion for them in the world, and remember that you are an individual who God created... and those passions and desires you had before becoming a mom...
They Are Still Possible.
Find a way to make it happen mama.
Leave me a comment and let me know what your life's passion is.

Terror In Subway

Remember That Time Before You Had Kids…

 

Okay, so remember that time before you had kids, when you would see other people’s kids throw a fit in a store and you’d be like,

 

“My kid’s never gonna do that.”

 

Right, yeah, and then you had kids and you realized,

 

“Hm, my kid does do that.”

 

So, a few days ago my kids and I were gonna go to Subway and grab a sandwich. It’s one of our favorite healthy places to go…

Well, they had been kind of being a little bit stinkers. So I told them when we were in the car to shape up.

They were not a 100% listening, but I’m like, “I don’t wanna cook, so we’re gonna go, “we’re gonna go to Subway.”

 

Well we walk into Subway, and I just felt like a ringleader or something, like… these little monkeys were just climbin’ all over everything…

and they were just pokin’ at each other.

And you know, not, they weren’t being bad. They were just being disruptive, and it was a crowded restaurant at that time, and there people trying to enjoy their meals and my kids are just goofin’ around.

I asked them several times to stop…

And you know finally, I was like, “You know what,

 

“we’re just gonna go.”

 

And we just turned around, we hadn’t ordered a sandwich or anything yet. We just turned around, walked ’em right out to the car, and they both walked out sobbing.

 

Okay, I don’t know about you, but when my kid cries, it breaks my heart, either of them. I don’t like to see them cry, I don’t like to see them sad, but you know what? Sometimes, it just has to be that way.

They have to realize that what they’re doing is not okay behavior, and if they’re not gonna turn it around and do what mom says, then they’re not gonna get the privilege of having lunch at Subway or any other place.

They’re gonna have a nice home cooked meal. It’s not like they’re not gonna eat. They’ll still eat. They’re just not gonna eat there. And I’m not gonna be out in public with my kids if they’re gonna not listen.

 

So that was a hard lesson for them to learn right then. It’s hard for mom too, because you don’t wanna see your kids cry, but if we don’t stop it now, imagine what kind of adult they would be.

 

Do you have any stories like that? When you’re in a place, in a public place, and you just can’t get your kids to listen and you had to do something drastic to make it work for you.

 

So, I’m curious to know, leave me a comment. I’d love to hear your story too.

Enjoy the present
